Snow Day Slippers Knitting Pattern- fast & beginner-friendly!

Snow Day Slippers Knitting Pattern

I whipped these slippers up last time it snowed and I was stuck indoors. They only took a few hours to knit and they’re so warm! I created this pattern especially for beginners- there’s no complicated heel shaping. As long as you can knit, purl and bind off, you can make these!

Scroll down for the pattern or click below to buy the ad-free, printable version for a small fee. The printable version is an instant download that conveniently prints on 2 pages.

    What I have done in the past is knit with the very fine sock elastic to keep them on and to knit the
    higher like knee socks.

      Mary when you worked these up like knee socks could you share how you did it? I would like to knit them for my daughter-in-law who is very cold natured. She bundles up at 40 degrees to go outside in NC.

    Allergic to wool. Thinking I can find yarn in same thickness and make these. YES?

    Use fine baby wool and fine needles to suit and away you go! A ribbon or fine elastic and they are perfect.

    Wow! I saw this pattern this morning, pulled out a pair of needles and my bulky chenille yarn. 3-hours later I have a pair of booties! And during that time I was doing laundry!

    Thank you for the pattern. I highly recommend this pattern to anyone, Newbies and old hands.

    Do you work with 2 strands of wool or just one?

    Hi, I don't have any bulky yarn, but I have tons of worsted. Could I use 2 strands of worsted for these booties? This is the only pattern I have found that I can actually understand! Thanks so much.

      I'm not 100% sure, but I think that might work. I've doubled up 2 strands of worsted a substitute for bulky when using some of my hat patterns and they turned out fine.

    after I have done ribbing for 20 rows do I cut my yarn long for the tail end and thread it through the stiches and then take them off my needle? Carole
